Sharpton on Fox to Geraldo Rivera right after the passage of the Obamacare healthcare reform bill on 3/21/10: “I think that this began the transforming of the country the way the president had promised. This is what he ran on. First of all we have to say that the American public overwhelmingly voted for socialism when they elected Pres. Obama.”
OK, the way I remember Sharpton spinning Obama before Sunday night is denying that Obama is a socialist. However, remember that very few liberals/Leftists understand socialism so all they see is the free lunch without considering that it comes at the cost of liberty, individuality and the conditions required to allow individuals to make the most of themselves. So for Lefties to understand that socialism is going to cramp their style beyond their worst nightmares, we need to pair this video with the insights in Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom.
